With a fierce winter storm blowing in, be thankful if you are warm and dry, with full bellies and a way to get around. Some are not so lucky.

Give from the abundance of your lives.

As recently posted in The Source, there’s a new giving program in town:

In this day and age of global communication, where it’s easy to get emotionally engaged with what’s going on in New York, Washington or Los Angeles, it’s important to remember that we live in Bend, Oregon….

We’re very excited about this opportunity that will usher in a new form of online giving for the more than 50 nonprofits that are participating in this inaugural year. … Each week, any donor who gives $25 or more will receive a gift, such as a free pint of beer from Immersion Brewing, Avid Cider or Worthy Brewing, or a coffee drink from Backporch Coffee Roasters, to name a few. The donation will change each week—not unlike a radio support program—and each week we hope to see support for these nonprofits increase.

You can donate to COVO directly through the CentralOregonGives.com site.

Get a little, while you Give!
